"Sail" with Miranda Edney using Voyage Beneath the Sea #graphic45

 

I just love altering letters, and had this set that spelled out sail! what better collection to create a gorgeous beachy decor piece.
I made my own little sailboat at the end. So easy to do! This paper begs to be fussy cut! One of my all time new faves!
G45 always knocks it out of the park with their imagery!

Okay so it's no secret i LOVE altering clocks! But i wanted to switch things up just a bit! I covered every single piece (except the handle and the legs) with the papers! Decoupaging can take some time! I know! But the end result is so worth it! I try to make it look as seamless as possible! I got grungey with some of my compass pieces, like it had been sitting at the bottom of the sea. I sure hope you like my odd spin on the classic altered clock :)

Rare Oddities mirror by Miranda Edney #graphic45

I bought this cheap-o ONE DOLLAR plastic mirror a long long time ago. Knowing one day i would feel inspired to give it an updo! Graphic 45 papers are perfect for items like this! I did lots of fussy cutting to fit pieces in where i needed them to go.

Rare Oddities cloche by Miranda Edney! Wow! #graphic45

I was so inspired by the image in the paper with the skull inside of the cloche, I decided to make my own! I pulled out anything I had that matched it somewhat and tried my best to mimic ithe picture , while adding my own spin. It even has LED light strands weaving through out. It looks so nice , lit up at night! I created a 3D Paper pumpkin and then just went to town making flowers and decorating until i was happy with the look. It felt so good to  just USE paper. I had not made flowers with my own hands in years! IT was so fun! For the most part anyways lol! Hope you all like it :)

Everything is so beautiful. The SAIL letters and the clock would fit perfectly in our spare bedroom. The pumpkin is so cute too, especially with the dome and decorations around it. Love the mirror idea too. That's really cool.
